“You don’t build a business, you build people, then people build the business” Zig Ziglar
We are here for the people behind local businesses. We are a friendly and approachable team with years of knowledge and experience helping local businesses to set up and grow.
We support a broad range of rural businesses because we know that local businesses:
- Encourage innovation and growth
- Offer employment opportunities
- Contribute directly to a sustainable local economy
- Help to build strong communities and networks
- Need specific support at key points in their development to help them prosper
